Remember to have a good back up plan. The conventional wisdom by tech experts on backups is known as the 3-2-1 method. Basically you want:

3 copies of any data you don't want to lose
2 different mediums it's stored on (so 2 different drives in your computer, for example)
1 copy kept offsite, to prevent against disaster.

No it is not any good. If you want this for backup get something more reliable. This is a home user device with their most basic hard drive inside. Its fine if you don't mind losing whatever you have on it.

It comes across as a good all rounder.

If you value your data then you need to back up to 2 drives.

The easiest to use will be a NAS unit like the WD my book duo which has 2 NAS (server) drives inside and can be configured easily to act as a 2 drive mirrored array to backup automatically - or you can just get two reliable hard drives used by servers solutions providers, like 2 HGST or toshiba drives and keep one to back up your data (if you want cheaper options then use server drives like WD reds, but any server drives would do. They cost more by you gain massively in reliability.

The consumer Seagate and WD drives have high failure rates high enough to make them unsafe to use for irreplaceable data like photos.

Most of my failed drives have got blown capacitors. That is what you get from cheap home consumer drives - cheap components which will fail and you have no cheap means of getting your data back. Once they go you are stuffed and no amount of trickery will help you.
